RE: Upgrades to make my generator quieter

Here is a pic of my custom exhaust install on the new Cummins Onan 2500i inverter generator (AF 990) utilizing the Cummins Exhaust Resonator (P/N 0155-2449)

RE: ALL NEW Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator - I LOVE IT!

FINISHED! Took me awhile to get back to the new install with traveling etc., but I'm pretty much 95% done. Just need to secure the exhaust pipe, route the aux propane inlet and secure the exterior panel to the camper. My 2013 AF 990 required a totally new approach. First, the HGLAA Spec A (2500i LP) was slightly larger than the original Onan 2.5 KVD. The mounts didn't line up, and the brackets made it too wide to fit in width wise. I built an aluminum rack sitting on shock absorbers to one raise it up for better front end air draw and two, to use the existing 3/8" mounting holes and three, to mount bolts up through the new rack into the bottom of the Generator tray. Everything Onan/Cummins supplies is in Metrics. Either spend the extra time to check and recheck your conversions or just buy a metric tape measure for $15 on Amazon. I built a template to get the mounting holes through my rack drilled and sized before I set it in. I braced my large aluminum 1”x2”s with Z brackets and rivets where the bolts mounted to the bottom tray. I used 1/8” thick 2” wide strips to further support the structure. The generator engine is already superbly shock mounted inside the chassis so my aluminum rack with the shock absorbers was almost overkill. I also added some sound deadening material (KILMAT 80mil) inside the entire generator compartment to further cut down on cabin noise – it worked. I mean the difference is unreal. I have zero vibration into the frame – unlike the old KVD - and the thing is SUPER QUIET. I mean it’s so quiet I intend to ditch the Honda 2000. I believe Onan advertises it meets the National Park regulation of 60db at 50 feet. At 50% load it’s 65Dba at 10 feet. Overall, it’s a huge upgrade with dramatic improvement. The drawbacks are you have to custom install these into older campers but in my view the improvement in vibration, noise and sound is unbeatable. Be ready to spend some time checking and rechecking your custom mount – I think I put it in two or three times to check for form fit and function – it’s a beast at 110 pounds. Cost is always a negative and due to supply chain issues, I had to wait a few months for delivery. On the plus side, the thing is so quiet I intend to put the Honda 2000 on the shelf and leave the gas cans at home. That in itself is a huge win! Now, if it can be as reliable and easily maintained like the Honda’s it’ll be a keeper.

RE: DC-DC Charger Wiring Input Suggestions

I used a set of these two-pole Pollack connectors. Male and Female 2-Pole Pollack Connector I mounted it (female end) on the underside of the left wing. From the Anderson connector in the truck bed I have a short pigtail with the male Pollack connector on the other end. I connect it up during when loading the camper.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Replaced the ICP sensor on my 2003 F350 6.0 PSD. I was blessed in that the CEL (check engine light) came on after my long trip last month to Yellowstone and the Tetons. Grabbed the DashBoss to download the codes then changed a few settings on my DashBoss engine monitor to pull up the voltage on the ICP sensor - ZERO nada. Confirmed it was toast. If you have not changed an ICP sensor on a 6.0 2003 and later you've not had a reason to cuss Ford Engine engineers!! It is located in the far rear (looking from the bumper aft) of the engine compartment just left of center and behind the turbo. You can either attack it from the bottom or the top. I choose the top - have to remove the intake, air cleaner, FICM, FICM Bracket, rear intake bolt and pig tail to the IPR valve JUST for access. Next, you better hpe you can get your 27MM or 1 1/16th socket onto the sensor in the compacted area. Regardless, it took me awhile but total success - CEL light off.

RE: ALL NEW Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator - I LOVE IT!

For those interested in the upgrade I just checked with Cummings last week. It's a 20 Week lead time for non OEM customers. They are pumping these out to the OEMs as fast as they can to meet manufacturer demand. You can find them on-line for about a grand more (if you want it quick) than you'll pay to wait. I put my name on the order list to replace my Onan 2.5 KVD LP Genny which, interestingly enough, the control board failed on coming back from Jellystone last week. Just FYI if your Genny only runs when you have to hold the "start" button down you've had a control board failure. I intend to just drop mine from the camper to replace the board since trying to unscrew the four cover screws that seem to be torqued down by a gorrilla at the factory have been unsuccessful....but I digress. From my research, here are some of the Part #s you'll need to make the swap: Part Number Description A063N9302.5HGLAA-8304 0155-2325Alum Steel TailpipeKit 0155-2449 Exhaust Resonator 0155-1015 Pipe Clamp The LP input line is on the opposite side of the current model, same with the power. Additionally, the exhaust exits the Driver side vs the passenger side on the current model. Hence the additional Muffler and accessory tailpipe kit. I intend to install the resonator to see if it makes an additional reduction in Db without degrading Genny performance.

deltabravo, can you include the part numbers of the Cummings accessories you needed (exhaust etc.) to complete your install? Or, even links to the pages you found? I'm sure as time goes on this post will be referenced hundreds of times as folks upgrade to the Onan 2500 HGLAA like me ;) Thanks!!!
